The fireworks used to shoot off over the Cinderella Castle, but when we went there last it came from three different places. So no matter where you are in the park you'll have a great experience.
This is the most magical moment of the night but the best thing is after the fireworks the park stays open.
Hope you all have fun!!!

Recommend going to Big Thunder Mountain before the fireworks start. The wait for the ride will drop by half just before the fireworks start. THEN get in line for the ride. You might just be able to catch the fireworks while you’re on the ride. Brings the ride up a notch.

These are my absolute favorite fireworks show ever! I love the projections on the castle, the music, and Tinkerbell still flies over head but now at the end. I can't wait to go back and see it again and again...

I've been an annual pass holder for Disneyland (California) for the last 5 years and I have NEVER seen a firework show more SPECTACULAR than the Happily Ever After Firework Show at The Magic Kingdom.

Let me start off by saying we stood in front of the castle about 20 feet back from the rope they draw in front of the castle, so I had an AMAZING VIEW!

The show itself runs for approximately 20 minutes, that is the longest firework show I have ever seen at an amusement park.

You would assume you would be looking up in the sky the entire time but this more than just looking up in the sky and watching fireworks go off. They had lazers and projections on the Castle displaying a large variety of scenes from all sorts of Disney Movies, and in one case they even had bubbles blowing down into the crowds.

This is a must do while you're at the Magic Kingdom, trust me you will not regret it.

Disclaimer: Once the show is done, it takes sometime to move out of the area due to the large crowds.

These are amazing! I am so glad we did not skip out of the park early. The light shows on the castle are indescribable. They are beautiful.

Park yourself in the square or as close the castle as allowed to take full advantage. We were further back, and although could see, it was hard with young children. If I had known what was in store I would have grabbed some treats and camped out earlier. Well worth waiting for!
